Scholarships for emergency nursing
NURSES who want to work in emergency departments, or who already work in them, are able to get access to further training, placements and professional development through Federal Government scholarships.
The Department of Health and Ageing initiative aims to ensure nurses are prepared, confident and skilled when providing patient care in emergency departments, where they are often the first point of contact.
Scholarships for clinical placements are available for undergraduate and postgraduate nursing students and registered nurses, postgraduate study for qualified nurses, including nurse practitioners, and professional development for nurses as well as emergency department non-clinical staff. Applications close on July 1. For more information, see the website of the Royal College of Nursing Australia at www.rcna.org.au
